The first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States was fighting for his life at a Dallas hospital and appeared to be receiving none of the experimental medicines for the virus, a top U.S. health official said.Earlier on Sunday health officials said they were seeking a "low-risk" homeless man, one of 38 people who potentially had contact with Duncan.The Nebraska hospital had treated and released Dr. Rick Sacra, an American missionary who contracted Ebola in Liberia, last month.Duncan's case has highlighted problems that American public health officials are trying frantically to address: The Dallas hospital that admitted him initially did not recognize the deadly disease and sent him home with antibiotics, only to have him return two days later in an ambulance.Frieden said he was confident the disease would not spread widely within the United States.
